SFDC Showplace #200
Marvic Textiles presents Indigo Mood, their Fall 2011 introduction of stone-washed cotton block prints, stripes and solids, which are inspired by 19th century print design and stripe documents from Alsace Lorraine in France.
“This collection is designed to tap into a younger, more casual market,” said Bridget Collins, Marvic’s Senior Designer. “With its ethnic influence, and vintage origins, “Indigo Mood” refers to the ‘hand-made’ origins of the print design, but also the influence of natural dyes, block prints, and the simplicity of the collection as a whole.” According to Collins, indigo is one of the oldest and most widely used dyestuffs. Derived from the root of the indigo plant, it has been used for centuries to give a natural, durable blue. Its popular use in French printed fabrics of the 19th century rendered the most universal fabric, denim (or literally ‘de Nîmes’, from Nîmes in Provence).
